Non Architecture Competitions are calling for registration to the fourth Re-Draw competition, dedicated to Centre Pompidou.
Nestled in the centre of Paris since 1977, the Centre Pompidou building, a glass and metal structure bathed in light, resembles a heart fed by monumental arteries in bright primary colours. Envisioned by its two architects, Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers, as a genuinely living organism, it is also built in one of the capital’s oldest districts and the beating heart of Paris since Medieval times, the Beaubourg plateau.
The aim of the “Re-Draw” competition is to develop one drawing to ‘represent’ an iconic architecture piece. The participants are asked to draft one image with absolute freedom of scale, technique, and level of abstraction.
Non Architecture Competitions encourage creativity, criticality, and innovation. The drawing can highlight functional aspects of the building, showing a deep understanding of one or more design aspects. It can focus on the aesthetic qualities, experimenting and mastering a drawing technique with hyper-realistic outcomes, or it can be an optical deformation, a caricatural interpretation, or a distant abstraction of the built architecture.
The drawing can strengthen a conventional interpretation of architecture or explore a new angle, a new point of view, intellectual and/or physical. The Centre Pompidou can be portrayed as a whole, apart, or a collage of disconnected moments. The entry is completely flexible and adaptable to the participant’s interpretation.
Non Architecture Competitions will award only one winner, selected by the jury collectively, and 6 honorable mentions, selected by each juror individually. The winning work will be awarded with 1,000 Euro and published in two books.
Non Architecture Competitions are open to all human beings, from every age and cultural background, working in groups or individually.
